Girard-Perregaux New Women’s Collections: The Vintage 1945 and The Cat’s Eye

Cat's Eye

Luxury watch brand Girard-Perregaux has debuted some beautiful new watches for women this season including the The Vintage 1945 and The Cat’s Eye Collection.

Since its creation in 2004, The Cat’s Eye collection has featured exquisite marriages of feminine curves with precious mechanisms. Girard-Perregaux adds a new facet of this collection, with an elegant and beautifully balanced small second marking the time ticking by on the mother of pearl dial.

A refined and poetic expression of the Girard-Perregaux Manufacture’s expertise, it combines the charms of a feminine watch with the merits of a self-winding mechanism. The new version of this collection remains unerringly true to the Brand’s philosophy and its quest for excellence in every detail.

Staying faithful to the Cat’s Eye’s sensual curves and oval form, its gold case houses an intricately worked dial in white or black mother of pearl, off which subtle, iridescent reflections glance. Illuminated by a halo, the date is clearly displayed in a window at 3 o’clock. The discreet small second is situated at 9 o’clock and enhanced by a radiating ray motif delicately traced on the dial. Each of the sparkling hour indexes is a precious, set stone, with numerals sculpted in gold wire cut and hand-polished before being riveted to the dial.

Continuing its long tradition, the Girard-Perregaux Manufacture has equipped this model with the GP3300, a mechanical movement renowned for its reliability and whose refined character can be appreciated through the sapphire case-back. The seductiveness of the Cat’s Eye owes much to its mechanism, which boasts an oscillating weight in pink gold delicately engraved with a motif in the form of the letters “GP”.

This exquisite work represents the Manufacture’s newest creation for the women, discerning in her choices yet conscious of the beauty and performance of a mechanical watch.

The Vintage 1945 Collection

The Vintage 1945 collection takes its inspiration from a rectangular model in the Art Deco style unveiled in 1945. While remaining true to its original spirit, the collection has evolved over time and has been made available in a number of both men’s and women’s versions, allowing Girard-Perregaux to express its creative mastery and its watchmaking expertise.

The latest creation to join this collection has been designed as the ideal companion for every situation. Its rectangular case has been stretched widthways to create a resolutely modern reinterpretation of the Vintage 1945 style. Delicately curved, it sits perfectly on the wrist, offering optimal comfort. Its original proportions are enhanced by a perfectly integrated bracelet and a panoramic dial with a subtle sunray decoration which beautifully complements its alluring character.

Glamourous yet functional, the Vintage 1945 Lady is available in a mechanical self-winding version or a quartz version. The self-winding version is the first to be equipped with the new Girard-Perregaux calibre, the GP2700. This pinnacle of technological advancement, with dimensions perfectly suited to women’s watches, is produced in the Manufacture in line with the most stringent quality criteria and its remarkable finishes are revealed through the sapphire case-back.
